Perry Noble invites Matt Chandler to New Spring Church.

After listening to Matt chandler’s barn burning sermon at Elevation Church’s Code Orange 2012 Revival  my heart was uplifted.

What was I even thinking  to get into a loin cloth?  I must be a naive goat. That is one of the first hiccup steps to   maturity from juvenile delinquency. Read More
